I didn't see the image of the person wearing a gasmask Joanna Jedrzejczyk was said to have posted on her instagram in a message to Weili Zhang. (Reference to corona virus in china?)

Will it go any better than Bethe Corriea making fun of Ronda Rousey's father committing suicide back in the day?

Zhang is already taking the high road in that she's not lashing back, just basically saying that she'll meet her in the Octagon in March. Honestly Joanna has always come across to me as arrogant to a degree and the problem is I don't think she even realizes it. It's certainly not cultural because I've met and seen several Poles that don't have that attitude.

I suspect women like Joanna, Miesha and PVZ who get breast implants are in the midst of some type of mid life crisis. Don't take their behavior too seriously, they're at a low point in life.

People used to get their mid life crisis at ages 40-50. Now it affects 20 year olds.

Men too get mid life crisis' in their 20's. Instead of breast implants, its usually sports cars, etc.

It's probably more of an early life crisis which I went through a few times to be perfectly honest, though I didn't buy a sports case because I was broke.
